Take a Peek

I have been blessed again to be featured in McCall’s Quick Quilts magazine, April/May 2010 issue. This is a “Layer Cake” friendly design or a great way use up pieces in your stash! 
I originally named this design, “Square Dance” but McCall’s renamed it “Mom’s Bouquet”. The beautiful fabrics I used are from Moda called “Eden” designed by Lila Tueller.
This is a super fast project and can be cut and sewn up in a day...REALLY! We have made up this quilt in several different fabric lines and it looks great with any fabric. Hopefully you have a subscription to McCall’s Quick Quilts but if not, this issue should be on newsstands now.

I want to thank my staff as well...Donna, thank you so much for being my “sewing angel” and always there to sew up the things I can never get to. And Janet, thank you for your beautiful machine quilting! These two ladies are the backbone of my business!!! Also a big thank you to Beth at McCall’s!
If you happen to make this quilt, please send us a photo of you and “Mom’s Bouquet” / “Square Dance” to I’d like to feature you on my blog and also Gidget will send you a quilting gift from my quilt shop. This offer is good through the end of July 2010.

Just a Little Freebie from the Southwest

Thought I’d share a freebie, “Crown of Thorns” table runner pattern on our web site. It was our Shop Hop block in 2009 and we made the block into a little table runner pattern for our customers.
We had some kits left over from our shop hop and took them to a few quilt shows where we vend and the kits sold like hot cakes. So, I decided to blog about the free pattern on our web site and share it with you since so many people enjoyed the leftover kits.
So dig into your stash for this striking little ditty. We did ours in Batiks and also a black, white and red version as well.

Everyone's a Winner!

Good Morning...beautiful day here! Crisp 60 degrees. 
Gidget went out this morning and picked the winner of the “Gidget Gobbles” Giveaway! I placed the names on little pieces of paper and placed a “Gidget Gobble” on each of the pieces of paper and made Gidget sit until I said, “OK...GO!!” The first Gidget Gobble she picked would be the BIG winner!

However, since there were only (3) entries (between both of our blogs-blogspot and iweb), Gidget and I decided that EVERYONE WHO ENTERED WINS! The big winner is “Quilter Jan” but there are goodies for “Vicky of LA Quilter” and “Jill of Ramblings of a Fabric Obsessor” as well! So, “Gidget Gobbles” and other quilting goodies all around! I’ll be contacting you all soon for your we can get your prizes out to you. Congrats!!!
Have a wonderful day all!!
Not Gidget but still a Cutie!!
